I was tired of Pilates gimmicks and continuing education that only served to profit large Pilates organizations. As a seasoned teacher I looked for a mentor who had a sophisticated understanding of Pilates. I wanted a thoughtful teacher who understood how to use the method to address the needs of an individual. Karen Carlson teacher training is not generic or rote Pilates. The curriculum reflects Karen’s rare understanding of the body. Karen trains serious teachers for a career in movement education. I’m grateful to call Karen my teacher.
